UI Automation Activities

CV Refresh


Refreshes the scope, reflecting application state changes. The button in the body of the activity can also be used to perform this action manually at design time. In order to minimize resource consumption, if the Refresh button is used in the designer, previously saved screens are checked by an algorithm and if they have not changed, the refresh call to the CV server is not done, and the old screen is used.

Note: Starting with UI Automation v20.10.5, CV Screen Scope is no longer compatible with CV Refresh due to the new caching strategy that enables CV Screen Scope to auto-refresh screens whenever necessary, so the CV Refresh activity has been deprecated.

Starting with UI Automation v23.4, the CV Refresh activity is hidden from the package and can no longer be used in new projects.
